This is more of a simple and beautiful song to me. It felt good to do something a little easier and not worry about giant chorus’ and great song structure. Thanks very much to my new drum teacher Ryan Berg for playing the djembe and doumbek for me in this song.
A little while back I heard The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel come on the radio in another room and I instantly knew I had to cover it. Something about it struck a deep chord within me even though I literally had no idea what it was about. Within seconds my mind was flushed with music and thoughts of how I personally wanted to approach the song. I liked my version of the track so much that I decided to make a video for it. Hard work as always doing everything alone but I’d like to thank my good friend Aden Oxenreider for playing the original piano track on the song.
Thanks very much to my vocal students for singing on this song. This song was very difficult for me to complete. Recording and mixing it with all it’s various layers was such a challenge but I’m hoping I did it some justice.
